A Garretson man accused of raping a 12-year-old child made his first court appearance Wednesday.
Twenty-nine-year-old Kristopher Aslesen is being held in the Minnehaha County Jail on a $500,000 cash bond.
He is charged with two counts of first degree rape, a Class C felony. Each count carries a maximum punishment of life in prison and a $50,000 fine.
Prosecutors say the victim will turn 13 next month.
Aslesen is due back in court in two weeks.
